Lookin For Some Sanity

Lookin up,
Lookin down,
Lookin for a purpose,
Lookin for some sanity.
This world we live in
It's quiet crazy for a matter of speaking.
The whole desire of anyone in our world
Is to be rich, beautiful, and have it all.
But what if that's not how you gain a total true "life".
Who is to say that all those things make life great?
What about those of us that work hard,
Barely squeeze by paycheck to paycheck?
We still live and breathe just the same.
We still have friends just the same.
Hell at least we know everyone by their name.
The rich put a block in our brains.
They tell us that beauty is one thing,
But my friend's as a saying was once said:
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"
So if we just look inside we will realize
That living doesn't mean you have to have everything.
For myself friends, family, a good job I enjoy, and a roof over my head
Are the greatest things I could want.
Yea it'd be nice to not have to fight with my checkbook
Be careful of how much I spend on food, and royalties for myself.
But I wouldn't give up the life I have now for anything.
I have great friends, a great family, and a good job.
I am loved, cherished, desired after, and overall well liked.
What else could a man want?
I still find myself however constantly looking over my life.
I want to be like those rich folks in some ways.
I want to not have constant fears
I want to not have to worry how I spend my money.
All because of how society is.
Even those of us that know what true life really is all about,
Still have the hopes, dreams, and in doubts.
So I guess until society changes it's rules I'll be:
Lookin up,
Lookin down,
Lookin for a purpose,
Lookin for some sanity.
